Ithaca SufferJets 214 vs Roc City Roller Derby Roc Stars 200 - May 11 2013

What a great night! A hometown win, our first marriage proposal on the track,  our first live radio broadcast thanks to WRFI Community Radio, last bout for our dear MadScienceFist before she heads west, and one of the best crowds in years. Our jeerleaders were out in force, an awesome officiating crew kept the game running smoothly, and many many volunteers provided their talents and superpowers.

Every hometown game we put the spotlight on a local organization, and this one was for The Advocacy Center, and with such big attendance we’re able to give them a gift of $464. Thank you Ithaca! Your support keeps us rolling and contributing to the community.

Final score:

214 SufferJets to 200 Roc Stars

Next home game: Saturday, June 1st
